A guest from Oakland, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2016 We had a wonderful trip to Tahoe in spite of, not because of, our rental. 1. We booked this property specifically because of the pool, hot tub, and recreation amenities. Had we known that the pool and recreation center would be closed for more than half of our stay, we would have booked elsewhere. Despite the amenities being prominently featured on the booking site, in reality they are only open on the weekends (we stayed Sat-Wed, so only had access for 2 of 5 days). Of course, no warning, reason, or refunds were given. 2. You can't walk anywhere from the property, not even to the pool (assuming it's open). It doesn't seem like a very long distance, but the rec center is in fact quite a ways away and there is a significant hill to climb on the way back. The road and any restaurants or shops are even further. You'll have to drive *everywhere*. 3. There are very high ceilings and lots of windows, which are lovely for seeing the trees and let in a lot of light. A LOT. There are no shades on at least half the windows, which means that the second the sun starts to rise, the whole place is bright as day. With sunrise around 5:15am, we had some VERY early starts to our days. 4. If you have kids, stay somewhere else. It is not AT ALL kid-friendly. There is a very dangerous staircase with a terrible railing -- the bars are far enough apart for *my* head to fit through, and both my kids' entire bodies could slide through easily. There is also glass everything everywhere -- tables, cabinet doors, mirrors, etc. If you don't mind being ripped off on the "amenities", getting in your car every time you want to do anything, waking up at the crack of dawn, and don't have kids, then I suppose this place would be fine for you.

Enjoyed the condo-it was clean and beautiful place. The view of Lake Tahoe was amazing! We saw the sunrise every morning. It was perfect driving distance to local ski resorts. I would think it would be lovely to stay here even in the summer. We enjoyed several great restaurants in the area and liked the kitchen to make simple breakfast and snacks. Wonderful vacation! Thank you so much for this great place!

Jesus Ernesto B. from San Juan, PR recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in January, 2016 Everything was superb. The condo is extremely beautiful with nice location and amazing views of the forest and lake. The kitchen is equipped with everything we needed. The master bathroom door got stuck and the maintenance people came considerably quickly. We had an amazing time with the fireplace and the hot tub. Everything was good. We will definitively come back next year, hopefully. Thank you very much for this place at an affordable price. It was a dream come true. - Liliana and Jesús E.
Doug S. from Jackson, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2015 We were very pleased with our stay at Cedar Summit. The unit was nicely updated and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The view of the lake was fantastic and we enjoyed morning coffee and afternoon cocktails on the deck. Hope to return next Fall.
Conley W. from Culpeper, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2015 A fantastic vacation home that exceeded our expectations. A well-equipped kitchen, a beautifully decorated townhouse with a large whirlpool tub and mirrors and Windows that added a spaciousness to this cozy rental. Situated in a quiet, wooded area, this place was perfectly supplied with books, DVDs, and games.
Reviewed by: Erik P. recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in September, 2015 We really enjoyed our stay. The place was clean, had amazing views, and was super close to the lake. We enjoyed the outdoors during the day and played board games by the fire at night. Was a lovely experience!Only thing that we didn't love was the hours of the pool (10-7) and hot tub/sauna (12n-845p). And the rules against bringing any kind of liquid into the area (even water). We would have enjoyed an evening dip in the hot tub after a day of hiking and a nice dinner... but it was closed. In general, there weren't many people using these facilities... and we believe the hours and rules are the main reason.
Edward G. from Midlothian, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2015 This condo location, is modern, cozy, and comfortable and ideal for a small family to enjoy the natural beauty and surroundings of Lake Tahoe while still enjoying modern comfort and convenience.
A guest from Winters, California recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in July, 2015 This was the second summer that we rented this unit. It was very comfortable and added to the vacation experience.
A guest from Salinas, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 I have stayed in several units in this complex over the years and this is the best one yet. It is a corner unit with lots of windows with beautiful views of the forest and lake. The unit has been luxuriously remodeled with many nice features and extra touches. We will come back again.
Beautiful, quiet, has everything you need and then some!
Olga M. from San Ramon, California recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2015 This condo has gorgeous views throughout, even in the bathroom and kitchen. It is very clean and has everything you might possibly need for a comfortable stay... and then some! The owners have thought of everything. There are a number of fun games for the whole family. All are brand new, so you know the owners cared and got them to make sure that you have a fun stay. They even got brand new picnic supplies, along with paper plates, cups and utensils, to make sure you don't have to worry about those during your trip. There is also every single piece of cutlery, china, utensils, appliances, etc, that you can think of and might possibly need. Indeed, the best vacation rental I have ever stayed in at Lake Tahoe!
Reviewed by: Marcelo C. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in January, 2015 The condo is very comfortable for 4. Nice touches: the jacuzzi in the bathroom upstairs, the little gas grill on the porch, the multitude of glasses and plates available, how well maintained everything (appliances included) was.One of the steps of the entrance stair broke, but they fixed it on the same day.The pictures are faithful and the condo is convenient for all areas North of Lake Tahoe.I would definitely stay there again.
Ruth A. from Bakersfield, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2014 We were very satisfied with everything. The cabin was beautiful. Beautiful scenery, peaceful ambient. I expected less of the cabin, once I saw it I was In awe. Loved it all.
Joan & Kevin N. from Centerburg, OH recommends this property. Stayed for 21 days in August, 2014 This property was all it said it would be and then some. We felt right at home from opening the door to sadly leaving. The ambience and decor really satisfied our need to feel we were in a special place. The beautiful lighted glass cabinets in the kitchen with equally beautiful fine stem ware for all occasions.Nothing was left to chance. The convenience of the new washer and dryers to the flip of a switch for an instant toasty fire. The sub zero frig was awesome with plenty of ice and easy access for food.My husband really appreciated the large desk area to work from and the Wi-Fi.The master suite was especially beautiful . I am fanatical about bedding and the high quality linen,pillows and bed were absolutely perfect!!This place does- not disappoint on any level....Even the wildlife (chipmunks) were great fun and entertaining.Don't get me started on that fabulous view of the most beautiful lake. I could go on but you get what we are saying.
A guest from Burlingame, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in August, 2014 It was a brief but wonderful stay at this quaint townhome. It's a great location near the Lake and beautiful views of the lake. I'd stay again in a hearbeat for a longer period
Penny B. from Horsforth, Leeds recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2014 Our stay at Cedar Summit, Carnelian Woods was peaceful and luxurious. The accommodation is in a convenient location within a short drive to Kings Beach and Tahoe City. The setting within the large woodland provides privacy and is away from the lakeshore road so very quiet. The on site amenities are extreme well looked after and the swimming pool a good size. The accommodation is excellent with everything you need, the owners clearly use it and have fitted it out well. Family and friends joined us for the 4th July and were very impressed with the accommodation. We would happily recommend this property and location.
Daniel S. from Nevada City, California recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in June, 2014 We had a fun time at Lake Tahoe. Boat trip from Tahoe City to Emerald Bay; visit to 'Castle' on East side of lake and also Sugar Pine Lodge. We enjoyed a great dinner in King City. Good weekend.
A guest from Vancouver, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2014 Clean, updated and quiet. The condo had almost everything we needed. Although, we could have used a couple beach chairs and beach towels.
A guest from Sunnyvale, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2014 We have been renting Carnelian Woods condos for the past 5 years 1 to 2 weeks per years and this one is now our favorite one (when we are just 3 or 4 people).
Jerry P. from San Jose, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in April, 2014 Our stay at #cw136 was absolutely beautiful the condo was clean, warm and very comfortable. The views from any Window in the house were picture perfect. Especially the view from the deck over looking the lake and mountains. It was everything we hoped for and then some. We thank you very much. And we will definitely be seeing you again.
A guest from Valley Springs, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2014 We had a great time. We had our 17 yr old daughter and her friend with us it was a great place for all of us. Lots of snow and lots of windows to see everything.
A guest from Santa Rosa, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in March, 2014 My wife does yoga and I am a cyclist. Perfect fit for both of us. The kitchen was perfectly equipped and gorgeous. the bar-b-q on the patio was a wonderful addition. Bed was just as comfortable as at home. My wife loved the jet bath in the master (I used the shower downstairs which was great). We have already told friends and family about how great our experience was. Oh, and the view from the patio is great, 2 sets of binoculars for bird watching included!
Patrick P. from Oakland, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 2 days in March, 2014 Well appointed with high end appliances and amenities. Perfect for our family of four. The tub was great and the place very comfy, clean and convenient. Really liked how bright the spaces were, lots of natural light not your typical dark Tahoe cabin. View of the lake was great, I got to watch the sunrise each morning. Management company was great, pilot light on the fireplace was out but they came and lit it for us while we were on the slopes. Hope to stay their again in the future!
